The area of production of the “Moscato d’Asti” includes 52 small villages in the county of Asti, Cuneo and Alessandria.
There are two wines made under the “Asti” DOCG appellation: Moscato d’Asti and Asti Spumante.
Both wines are made using 100% Moscato grapes but the Asti Spumante is SPARKLING while the Moscato d’Asti is FRIZZANTE semi-sparkling (below 2 bar of pressure).
To reach the complexity and to preserve the delicate aromas of Moscato, the grapes are de-stemmed, soft pressed and
immediately refrigerated to a temperature of 0° degree Celsius (32°F) to avoid any type of undesired fermentation. The juice can remain in that situation for several month waiting for the time to be bottled. In fact the Moscato d’Asti is fermented only a few days prior bottling to ensure the most intense aromas and complexity in the glass.
iPola Moscato is made selecting the best grapes coming from the vineyards in Valdivilla, an area notoriously suitable for Moscato of great structure and strong aromas. The soil is characterized by white marn, limestone and vein of sandstone that underlines the unique complexity exclusive of Valdivilla area.
